SEMICON Europa highlights challenges and opportunities in smart segments


Тhis year’s edition of Europe’s trade fair for electronics design and manufacturing innovations and applications SEMICON Europa will take place from 12 to 15 November, 2019 in Munich, Germany. The international forum will highlight smart technologies and the talent vital to continuing industry growth. The show will be traditionally co-located with productronica.



SEMICON Europa will highlight challenges and opportunities in smart segments such as automotive, medtech, manufacturing and fab management including MEMS and sensors. Europe’s research and development hubs, chipmakers, and materials and equipment companies are strategically positioned in the global electronics value chain to shape the development and growth of smart applications.

“Collaboration and investments in key Smart application segments, including medtech and automotive where Europe plays a central role, are crucial to continuing innovation by the European semiconductor industry. SEMICON Europa is the premier platform in Europe for gathering key players across the value chain for the collaboration critical to exploiting opportunities in Smart application development”, said Laith Altimime, president of SEMI Europe.


This year’s highlights

To strengthen Europe’s strategic leadership and inspire the development of new products and technologies, SEMI this year formed partnerships with imec, CEA-Leti and Fraunhofer, three of the world’s top technology research and innovation centres. Europe received additional support from Bosch, Infineon and Intel Ireland. For the first time in decades, all three European chipmakers invested heavily in new 300 mm wafer fabs to help fuel the digital economy.

“SEMICON Europa attracts a highly influential audience from every segment and sector of the European microelectronics industries including semiconductors, LEDs, MEMS, printed/ organic/ flexible, and other adjacent markets. Exhibitor and attendees meet to enact change and address industry-shaping trends. After a successful SEMICON Europa 2018, we now look forward to welcoming you in Munich at SEMICON Europa 2019”, the event organizers shared.


United platform

“This year SEMICON Europa will be co-located with productronica creating the strongest single event for electronics manufacturing in Europe, and broadening the range of attendees across the electronics chain. SEMICON Europa events will expand attendee opportunities to exchange ideas and promote technological progress featuring the most advanced and innovative electronics manufacturing in Europe. SEMICON Europa connects the breadth of the entire electronics supply chain”, organizers announced.
SEMICON Europa visitors will have the unique opportunity to connect to a vital market and companies driving innovation in electronics. The accompanying program will include various technical sessions, conferences, the attractive TechARENA and TechLOUNGE, and executive networking events.
